In his welcoming speech, Prof. Gaspers pointed out the difficult situation of many young people. The young generation is being shaken to its foundations by global crises and wars. Especially in these times with many challenges, with worries and hardships, the occasion of this evening should be emphasized.
Even in economically uncertain times, almost 50 companies, foundations, associations and private individuals supported the students of the HFT Stuttgart. The applause of the present scholarship holders underlined the important meaning of his words: Only together will we be able to emerge strong from all crises.
In a subsequent interview, Prof. Gaspers elicited a few things from four scholarship holders about their studies, the great sense of a scholarship and why studying at the HFT Stuttgart can be really fun in addition to all the effort. All four scholarship holders emphasized the great added value of scholarship support. At the get-together in the auditorium, the conversations that had started in a previous speed dating event could be continued. The Speed Dating was held for the first time as a networking event and brought together all scholarship holders and sponsors.
